  • Honest look at menopause & midlife
  • Biblical application for real life challenges

You just turned 45! You’re feeling trapped and tempted to make choices that will devastate your life. What can you do? Pause wisely relates these signs of midlife to a choice we all have—to grow or self-destruct. With humour, transparency, and biblical wisdom, Sara Allen reveals truth we may never know on our own. God designs a glorious purpose for us in this awkward time of life—to grow!

Michael Reeves

President of Union School of Theology

Sarah Allen shows how women can find comfort and joy even in the toughest parts of this phase of life. This is a great little read, not only for women, but for husbands and pastors to help the women they care about.

Carolyn Ash

Former Ministry Wives Conference Organiser, The Proclamation Trust

"Pause is helpful, realistic, reassuring, encouraging, and uplifting all at once. It is a wonderful reminder that God still has work for us to do. Full of hope. Thank you, Sarah."
